The 2021 Open Championship will be the 149th Open Championship, held 15–18 July 2021 at Royal St George's Golf Club in Sandwich, England.
It will be the 15th Open Championship played at Royal St George's, and the first since Darren Clarke won in 2011. Alterations to the course since 2011 include changes to bunkers on the 4th, 5th, 7th, 17th and 18th hole.
The 2021 Open Championship will be televised by Comcast in both the United Kingdom and the United States, domestically in the UK with the Sky Sports brand, and in the United States by their Golf Channel brand, including broadcast network coverage on weekends.
Royal St Georges tasked golf course architects Mackenzie and Ebert to make alterations to the course in preparation to the 2020 Open Championship. Large bunkers at the 4th and 7th holes, and a large bare sand area to the left of the 5th hole were restored. Two bunkers to the left of the 17th green were replaced by a swale and bunkering was altered on the 18th hole. Improvements were also made to the practice facilities.
